Got one off of GB last week and should be seeing it this coming week.
All because of you guys!

No, actually I sold a 3" M66 some years back for $375 when I was on a M1911 kick. Have always regretted it. I'm friends with the current owner and he wouldn't let it go for more than twice that now.
The 3" M65 is my 'consolation prize' (and birthday gift) to myself.
Pics coming when it does.

I posted this one yesterday, but since you asked... I foolishly sold a nice M65 no dash years ago and have been looking for one ever since. Finally found this one. It's not getting away!

Here's my Model 65-3, along with my Model 13-3 and Model 64-3 all with 3.0 inch barrels. I really like the 3.0 inch barreled K-frames, and I'd love to add a Model 65 Ladysmith one day.

Regards,

Dave

What? This old thing?

Why thank you!

I walked into my LGS looking for a shark gun. Ok, I was really looking for a boat gun and they had a 4" GP100. I'd been lusting after a GP since the early 90's and they had one in the case. Grabbed it, fondled it and dry fired it (with their permission). It was OK, just wasn't quite what I had built up in my mind over the years. The owner's son saw my disappointment and reached under the counter and handed me the 65-3. "Try this one he said." It was lust at first sight. The action was incredible, the "pointability" was amazing and it was stainless! When I opened the cylinder (for the second time; the first was a safety check) I noticed the proof marks were my initials. Can you say sold?

And by the way, it doesn't do shark or boat duty these days. That's reserved for the G30 which can be replaced easily....

I'll resurrect the thread.....

Picked this one up at a local show today.

Traded a Model 64-5 fair value and a few extra bucks for it.

Fantastic shape.

Got to keep my grips too.

OK, I'll do my part to put life into this old zombie thread too.

My 65-5. I've said it before but I'll say it again. If I had to get rid of all but one, this would probably be the one I'd keep.

Here you go, an old police trade in I've had for years. It had Pachmayers on it and I just (like this morning) traded out these grips from another 686 to this one. For some reason I like these on this gun more than I like them on the 686 - maybe the weight?
Anyway, here it is.

I've had my 65-5 since new.in the old days you could get your smithing done during the 5 day waiting period. I had this one sent to bill Davis before I picked it up.

These are beautiful revolvers. I had a 4" model 65, and sold it with other revolvers, to purchase semi-auto's when LE changed over. I just bought a new snub nose model 60. I am looking for a mint condition model 65. I would prefer a 3" barrel. You guys that have them are very fortunate. They started making new model 66, but I do not like adjustable sights. So maybe they will start making the model 65 again, I hope.

I'm not a fan of the adjustable sights either. I'm gonna replace it with a C&S Extreme Duty fixed rear.

Shoots unbelievable, I'm very happy, been looking for a loooong time.
I'm getting in touch with my feminine side. Lucky Lady (smith) came with box and Jewelry case but not the original grips............anybody got any?

Picked this 65-3 up today at a local show. $500 seemed fair.

Second Model 65 for me.

This 65-5 started out life with a 4" barrel and case color hardened hammer/trigger. The previous owner had the barrel swapped out to the 3" one that it now sports. I swapped out the hammer/trigger for flash chromed pieces, as I prefer the look. This gun is an excellent shooter (and not a bad looker in my book).

I was checking out this model on GB. One was SS and looked very good. Starting bid was $699.00 There was another on GB for starting bid of $2500. No bids on either guns.

Just bought it. I'll get a chance to shoot it along with my new SP101 next week.
